    Roland to Halion via Chickensys Translator

    Does anyone have any experience converting Roland S-760 samples to Halion with Chickensys? If so, does it work well? Is it worth even doing? As I\'m getting my new rig going (slowly but surely), I\'m starting to think my piles of Roland samples from the old days might be fairly useless sound-wise at this point.

    It\'s not perfect, but it works. The latest version of Halion also imports Roland samples directly.

    Regards,

Halion 2 does a pretty good job of importing most of the Roland samples. Some, however, it can\'t do correctly, the Symphonic String 1aS patch for example (this was the workhorse string sound back in the old days [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] .

    It did surprisingly well with a great deal of the Distorted Reality stuff. And revisiting that, I must say that Eric is awesome. It may have gotten overused, but there is a LOT of stuff in DR that is great, and weirdly, sounds pretty fresh even almost 10 years later. I bet now if I used some of it people would go \"wow! where\'d you get that sounds\" instead of being able to identify the lib right away.
